woman fly? Apparently not. Only apparently. This Russian athlete,Yelena Isinbayeva, can. All she needs is a pole and a cheering crowd backing her. For a split second she seems to stop well over the crossbar and smile to the crowd before falling onto the landing mat. Yelena was born in Volgograd, the former Stalingrad, in Russia. Maybe when she was a child she was imbued with the spirit and strenght of those who defended her hometown during WWII. Now Yelena lives up to their memory. Yelena Isinbayeva goes higher and higher like a Soyuz spacecraft but using only her muscles and a pole.

Beautiful Yelena Isinbayeva

Yelena flies like a wingless Pegasus of the modern era. Isinbayeva won the 2004 Olympic Gold Medal with a new World Record (then 4.91 m), was elected Female Athlete of the Year by the IAAF twice (2004 and 2005), and Sportswoman of the Year by Laureus, and has set 20 world records. Unbelievable. On July 22, 2005, Yelena became the first female pole vaulter to clear 5.00 metres. She's not only one of the best athletes in the world but also one of the prettiest female athletes. In the recent World Championships in Athletics held in Osaka she revalidated her World Champion title although she was not able to break her own world record getting only 4.80. A real flying woman: Yelena Isinbayeva.
